    Match Point Analysis

    Match Point Analysis

    Most of Woody Allen's films––both the funny and the serious––are bleak musings of the human experience. Match Point, his 2005 neo-noir drama, is particularly somber, offering little in the way of hope and meaning. So, then, what is life's essential ingredient for good fortune and happiness? Luck.

    F For Fake Podcast

    “Our works in stone, in paint, in print, are spared, some of them, for a few decades or a millennium or two, but everything must finally fall in war, or wear away into the ultimate and universal ash - the triumphs, the frauds, the treasures and the fakes. A fact of life: we're going to die. "Be of good heart," cry the dead artists out of the living past. "Our songs will all be silenced, but what of it? Go on singing." Maybe a man's name doesn't matter all that much.”

    Vertigo Analysis

    Vertigo Analysis

    Last week, the Classroom Critics attended a screening of Vertigo, a film many consider to be Hitchcock's magnum opus. In this episode, the Critics analyze this tale of obsession and reflect on the cathartic experience of seeing it on the big screen. Be sure to let us know what you think of this film.

    The Room

    After a long break, we decided to return with something truly great. Actually, this is an impromptu episode that covers one of the worst films ever made. We apologize in advance for the audio quality, but we decided to record this episode at a loud, local pub. So just imagine yourselves as listening in from a nearby table. Next time, we’ll find a quieter nook.

Hitchku Herrmann ,

Best film podcast!

Finally! A film podcast with substance! These guys are articulate and actually ENHANCE films with their earnest discussions. One of their advantages is that they talk about films they WANT to talk about rather than forcing episodes about the latest blockbusters. I enjoy these discussions so much that I watched "The Third Man" for the first time just so I could listen to that episode. I look forward to this.
